Knowing Hermione, he was sure it would be a large book full of very difficult spells – but it wasn't. His heart gave a huge bound as he ripped back the paper and saw a sleek black leather case, with silver words stamped across it, reading Broomstick Servicing Kit.
Hermione may spend most of the book ticking off Harry (with her logic and her responsible behavior), but she is definitely a considerate friend.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione, however, were eager for it to finish so that they could talk to Hagrid. They knew how much being made a teacher would mean to him. (5.263)
Friendships can span generation gaps. We love the image of Harry, Ron, and Hermione impatiently eating and waiting for the chance to run up and talk to Hagrid.
